Part 1 - This distinctive walking tour provides an African American history of the University, with emphasis on the 19th and 20th centuries. The Black and Blue tour contributes to an understanding of our past as we build a better Carolina and work to create a fuller perspective of Carolina’s history. Part 1 of the tour focuses on central campus locations including Chapel of the Cross, McCorckle Place and Polk Place; Part 2 focuses on Lenoir Hall, the Stone Center, the School of Government SERVICE Mural and the Chapel Hill Cemetery. Our guide, Robert Porter, has more than 30 years of experience as a lecturer in the department of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies and has won numerous teaching awards. He remains passionate about his interests in history, public history and African American history, all of which go back to his grade-school days.
